Political Attention and a Strategic Approach to Indoor Climate in Schools

Reference: Hvidovre Municipality

How do you place the topic of indoor climate in Danish schools on the political agenda? Viegand Maagøe helps Hvidovre Municipality with a strategic approach to indoor climate in schools.

How we solved the task

Hvidovre Municipality has previously been working on creating an overview of the indoor climate in schools, however without focussing on the benefits of a more strategic approach to these initiatives.

As a part of a RealDania pilotproject Viegand Maagøe supports the municipality in composing  a strategic indoor climate plan. The plan contains the political vision for the public schools in Hvidovre Municipality, that seeks to improve the schools’ physical surroundings.

The strategic indoor climate plan will be implemented based on a mapping of the actual conditions in the schools.  The plan shows how the municipality can implement initiatives in their everyday processes.

As part of the project Viegand Maagøe will complete the following:

  • Measurements
  • Data collection and analysis
  • Observations by anthropologist (in collaboration with Transition)
  • Specific suggested solutions by architect (in collaboration with Arkitema Architects)
  • A complete strategy.

Furthermore, Hvidovre Municipality is interested in a tool for incorporating indoor climate activities when planning new buildings or renovating.

We have developed a simple tool, which takes parameters of indoor climate such as air quality, thermal indoor environment and lighting into account in the planning phase.

Contract period: 2019 - continuing


Viegand Maagøe achieved a close cooperation with Hvidovre Municipality, while managing the process regarding strategy development. Data has been collected on several indoor climate parameters and workshops have been organized with the municipality and the associated anthropologist.

We are anticipating a practical and realistic strategy for the indoor climate in Hvidovre Municipality. Hopefully this strategy will have a natural interaction with the Municipality’s vision for the schools.

The strategy will be completed in fall 2019.
